Chris Caywood knew the challenges he encountered in the classroom would prove as difficult as any tests he faced in the pool his freshman year at Lehigh. The Sebastian River graduate's first college semester demonstrated that. He finished second in the 500 freestyle (4 minutes, 35.89 seconds) and fourth in the 200 freestyle (1:43.33) at the Class 2A state meet his senior year. "He's done a great job," Lehigh coach John Morrison said. "He's training very well. It's a different kind of environment with him being in the Northeast now and obviously academically.

" Eberhardt had studied physics and worked in the electronics industry before becoming a professor of electrical engineering at Lehigh. Eberhardt's side work culminated in his 1998 book, "From the Big Bang to the Human Predicament."
